NIST requests comments on a revised draft (second public draft) report on NISTIR 7977, NIST Cryptographic Standards and Guidelines Development Process. This revised document describes the principles, processes and procedures behind our cryptographic standards development efforts. Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 27, 2015.
This draft results from a NIST-initiated review of its cryptographic standards development process in response to public concerns about the security of NIST cryptographic standards and guidelines.
It reflects NIST’s response to comments received on a February 2014 draft.
We are soliciting public comments on this revised draft to obtain further feedback on the principles and mechanisms we use to engage stakeholders and experts in industry, academia and government to develop these standards. A news release from NIST's Public Affairs Office on this revised draft can be found here. (An announcement can also be found on the CSRC Drafts page as well)
Comments will be reviewed and posted on the CSRC website. We expect to publish a final report based on this additional round of feedback. The revised publication will serve as basis for our future standards development efforts and review of existing standards.
Note to Reviewers:
NIST requests comments especially on the following:
